Join the AAP for two virtual courses in June.
Treatment and Prevention of Acute and Chronic Pain in Children, June 4-6, will address undertreated and underrecognized pediatric pain in infants through adolescents.
Acute, chronic and needle pain in childhood can result in poor clinical outcomes, including increased morbidity as well as anxiety, needle phobia, health care avoidance and chronic pain. This evidence-based course will cover interdisciplinary treatment strategies, including pharmacology, integrative medicine, psychotherapy, physical therapy and interventional modalities, in ambulatory and inpatient settings.
Other topics include safe analgesic prescribing during the opioid crisis and the influence of bias and adverse childhood experiences on pain treatment and substance use disorder. Pain management and opioid state medical board continuing medical education requirements also will be addressed.
Course topics include:
- “The Elephant in the Room: Appropriate Analgesia in the Time of an Opioid Epidemic,”
- “Adverse Childhood Experiences and Pediatric Pain,”
- “Implicit Bias and its Consequences on Pediatric Pain Management,”
- “Multimodal Analgesia: Better Pain Control with Fewer Side Effects,” and
- “Treating and Preventing Pain and Anxiety Caused by Needle Procedures.”

After the course, learners can participate in a pediatric-specific four-hour course that will help them meet the requirements to obtain a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine for opioid use disorder.
